Being a part of Jordan Brand is a special honor that not many get the honor of. The elite club of Jordan athletes, entertainers, and musicians who are on that special roster get their special pick of product, dope events, and even some get their own retro collaboration or signature model. Like we saw at the Super Bowl, Justin Timberlake got his own special iteration of the Jordan 3 and now Chris Paul is getting his own version of the Jordan 12.
This special retro is a part of the ‘Back To School’ collection that honors the respective alma maters of Jordan family members Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony. Taking on his high schools colors, this Air Jordan 12 honors Chris Paul’s alma mater, West Forsyth High School. In 2003, Chris Paul graduated from West Forsyth High School in Clemmons, North Carolina before he went on to take his basketball career to the next level at Wake Forest University. To match West Forsyth’s school colors, Jordan Brand created an Air Jordan 12 that’s dressed in a stately combination of Olive, Sail, Black, and Metallic Gold. A premium aesthetic takes center stage on this pair, as its eyelets come dipped in Metallic Gold and the pair replaces standard Jordan 12 leather with a satin and suede construction. Finishing touches include ‘Class of 2003’ screen-printed on the sneaker’s left insole while Paul’s signature CP3 logo takes shape on the right.
